Dealer upgrade all VW needs

2000 Volkswagen GTI GLX VR6 2dr Hatchback


My GTI GLX has been an absolute
pleasure to drive. The dealership
experience however, is not.
The metro dealer, Jim Ellis, can not
get a
car in for an oil change without an
appointment at least a week + in
advance! Since the VR6 engine has a
unique oil filter design, and the Jiffy
Lube types struggle with getting a
domestic car's oild changed without
forgetting something, the dealer is it.
I have had good luck at Harrison and
Heritage VW stores, however.

I'm now in need of a larger vehicle and
will likely consider Honda or Nissan as
their dealer networks are much more

Best Features

Smooth power, great low-end torque for city driving. Relatively smooth ride. Great interior and dash design and plenty of room for two and luggage. Fantastic brakes!!!

Worst Features

A little noisy at high sppeds, needs a 6th gear, which would also help gas mileage. Suspension could use more travel for large bump absorption. Upgrade the dealer experience an I'm in for a Passat!
